Olav Solgaard

Professor of Electrical Engineering

Professor Solgaard’s group focuses on optical micromechanical devices and applications. Particular areas of interest are optical networks, optical switches, photonic crystals, optical MEMS and fabrication technology for microoptical devices and systems. In telecommunications, the Solgaard group develop wavelength selective switching networks, and collaborate with Professor Fan’s group on the design of tunable filters based on photonic bandgap crystals with MEMS actuators.
